SEGA announced today that Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is back on mobile (was he gone?) and has been revamped with plenty of improvements, not the least of which is inclusion of the never-before-seen Hidden Palace Zone. This new version is built from the ground up for mobile devices, and features widescreen display, a 60fps frame rate, and a remastered soundtrack.
I live in a one computer family (for now), and that one computer is a 27″ iMac. It’s great for getting serious work done…comfortably…but there are times when I’d like to take my work with me. The iPad can kind of handle that when the lack of a file directory and mouse input don’t get in the way. Thankfully, I can still connect a keyboard to it, and one of the best I’ve used since the first iPad is the Belkin QODE Ultimate Keyboard Case for iPad Air.
We normally don’t post app updates here at AppleTell; too many new apps to cover, after all. However, this is Temple Run 2, which I’m told is quite popular with the kids these days. This holiday season, it may be even more popular with plenty of updates for Christmas, as well as a new water slide and some mysterious masks to discover.
There are countless games available that see you facing off against the living dead, but what do you do when your enemy is the Livid Dead? You call on Rayman to save the day, then you wait for him to show up on December 12th. That’s when Feral Interactive will release the 2D platforming adventure, Rayman Origins, for the Macintosh.
Final Fantasy IV: The After Years for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch costs $15.99. I know, right? That’s crazy! Except do you know what you get for that $15.99? You get the game, the whole game, and nothing but the game. No extra payment to unlock chapters and characters. No in-app purchases to level up your characters. No ads. For $16, you get Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, and it’s worth getting.
Whether you’re getting an iPhone 5/5s this holiday season or giving one, a case is likely going to follow. HardCandy would like for you to consider their HarvestCraft Slider, which is fully compatible with both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. Its name may make it sound like it’s out of season, but with a variety of color options which you can change at will, you could find yourself using it year-round.
I just finished an afternoon of selling Christmas trees, and it was cold. Quite cold. I’m used to that here in beautiful downtown Ohio, but that doesn’t mean my hands have to like it. With only a garbage can fire and a pair of mittens (with my hockey team’s logo, because I’m manly) to keep my hands warm, I decided out there that I need a new pair of gloves. With the Mujjo Double-Layered Knitted Touchscreen Gloves, I’ll get that warmth I want combined with touchscreen usability.
When you’re an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch owner, every day is Cyber Monday! (Except for Tuesday. Or Wednesday. Or Thursday. Or Friday. Or Saturday. Or Sunday.) Listen, the point is that there are always deals to be found, and you’re always shopping online. But this Cyber Monday is special, because there are some great deals for apps and accessories. Head inside to see what deals are worth wasting your precious work hours for.
Black Friday has come and gone, Saturday and Sunday haven’t yet been claimed by the marketing machine, but then it’s time for Cyborg Monday! I mean Cyber Monday! Cyborg Monday actually sounds pretty cool, especially if you’re a Janelle Monáe fan like me, but we’ll stay on topic and focus on all of the Black Friday deals for the Macintosh that have carried over through December 2nd, and highlight some new ones, too.
This review is largely about my wife and her iPhone. Having spent her every winter in Ohio, she doesn’t mind being out in the cold, provided she’s dressed to handle it. Her latest gloves of choice, in this regard, are the Moshi Digits touchscreen gloves. They keep her hands fairly warm, but more importantly, they allow her to use her iPhone without exposing her fingers to the cold.
Black Friday is upon us, and the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch app and accessory deals have built up like you wouldn’t believe. We’ve got apps on sale and we’ve got apps for free, we’ve got some excellent discounts on all kinds of accessories, and iPhone 4/4s owners can get themselves a StealthArmor skin for free! Head in now for the details, as this’ll be our last update until we see what carries over to Cyber Monday.
Seems Black Friday this year should be called Black Friday and a Good Portion of Thursday. I’ll let you all argue about shopping/family time on your own shopping/family time, because I’m here just to let you know what deals are out there on the online. Plenty of software and hardware developers are discounting their wares, and we’ve rounded them all up right here for you until the madness subsides.
